Kamala Harris: 'I Have Great Faith in The United States Postal Service'
Biden's VP pick pushes mail-in voting
2020 Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris said during an interview with Charlotte’s WSOC, she has “great faith” in the United States Postal Service’s capacity to handle large amounts of mail-in ballots.
“I have great faith in the United States Postal Service."
"And let’s remember, it is one of the hallmarks of a democracy and our democracy.”
“There is no question that we have to take the election system and the process seriously,” Sen. Harris said.
“We have to do everything we can all of us to fight to protect the integrity of our election system.”
Harris's remarks come just weeks after The House of Representatives voted 257-150 in favor of $25 billion in funding for the Postal Service.
The funding was to prevent any cost-saving operational changes that could delay mail delivery until 2021.
In August, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recalled members back to Washington D.C. to vote on a USPS bill amid the Democrats' push for mail-in voting for the November election.

The news came as President Donald Trump was accused of sabotaging mail delivery ahead of the general election.
"Alarmingly, across the nation, we see the devastating effects of the President's campaign to sabotage the election by manipulating the Postal Service to disenfranchise voters," Pelosi (D-CA)said.
In August, The United States Postal Service warned voters in 46 different states that they cannot guarantee that their mail-in ballots will arrive in time to be counted for the election in November.
Earlier this week, Attorney General William Barr warned those pushing for mass mail-in voting in the run-up to the November election are restricting public confidence and "playing with fire."
"This is playing with fire. We’re a very closely divided country here," Barr said.
"And if people have to have confidence in the results of the election and the legitimacy of the government, and people trying to change the rules to this methodology, which, as a matter of logic, is very open to fraud and coercion, is reckless and dangerous," Barr added.
"And people are playing with fire," Barr stated.
